• Academy Honesty
Students should respect the SFU intellectual honesty policies and code of student conduct
(please refer to http://www.sfu.ca/policies/Students/index.html for details).
Submitted answers should be your own work. A student may receive zero credit for a
problem or an assignment if the answer is substantially identical to that of another student
or a known source. Violation of academic honesty may result in a more severe penalty
than zero credit for an assignment, a test, and/or an exam.
